We know at least one player is really fired up here tonight.
When CC Sabathia struck out Luke Scott with the bases loaded to end the last of the seventh, Yankees catcher Francisco Cervelli jumped up and thrust his fist through the air. I mean if it had connected, someone might have needed a standing eight count.
One word came to mind - bush.
Is he taking lessons from Jonathan Papelbon now? I haven’t noticed too much before, but this may not be the first time the young man has gotten so excited by a fine Yankees play over the Orioles.
Maybe he should act like he’s been there before. He has. New York has won 20 of the last 23 in this series.
Someone tell Cervelli to calm down and save the effort. What does he do when they beat the Red Sox?
